About

There are in all fifty-eight mazurkas by Chopin. Pavel Kolesnikov, making a welcome second recording for Hyperion, here performs a selection of twenty-four, from the earliest examples dating from his teenage years, through to the rich maturity of Op.59 No.2 from 1845.

Reviews

I know of no other pianist who combines attention to the smallest detail with such nobility of phrase and cohesive sweep of the dance as a whole. The engineers have captured Kolesnikov’s sound – silvery, deeply resonant – perfectly. Listening to this recording over a period of weeks, Wagner’s description of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony as ‘the apotheosis of the dance’ kept running through my mind. Whether or not Kolesnikov’s new disc will suggest to everyone ‘the apotheosis of the mazurka’, for me these performances are the most beautiful and strikingly original I’ve heard.  Patrick Rucker
